#12674358 Gamestop Used "Pre-Owned" sale 4 games for $10 4/27-5/17

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 03 May 2015 - 09:08 PM

I went to Gamestop today to buy some prepaid cards, and a good deal of the games that were marked 4 for $10 have been sold. $2.50 a video game that used to cost $60 is not bad.




#12673885 Boxing Discussion Thread: Mayweather vs Pacquiao 5/2

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 03 May 2015 - 11:13 AM

Fight was boring, pretty sure the Compubox punches thrown numbers were made up.  Mayweather would be great on Dancing With The Stars.

Wouldn't trust Mayweather with his DTS partner.

If two guys are in suits at a Best Buy or something, they might be trained assassins or aliens.

I agree with Cheapy and Wombat, a donate button for modders to make some cash is an excellent idea. The problem is proving ownership for a mod. If a person steals a mod and sells it, the creator is left without compensation.

 

One more thing, the sixth ingredient for the six-way would be the healthier, spicy option, the jalapenos. I side with Shipwreck, bacon would overwhelm the chilli.

What if instead of bacon, Shipwreck makes it with pork belly as the main meat? Not beef.

#12666368 PSN Weekly Deals - 4/28: Golden Week + Star Wars Sales!

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 28 April 2015 - 10:59 PM

Wow, I was excited for the Golden Week Sale, and then I looked at the list and I am not interested in MOST of the games due to me owning them in other formats. The Star Wars Pinball tables look interesting. Def. going to skip Angry Birds since $10 is too steep.




#12651346 Just bought a 3DS. Physical games or digital?

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 20 April 2015 - 11:09 PM

Nintendo 1st Party games. Definitely physical. The rest it depends.




#12648990 Cowboom Console Deals

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 19 April 2015 - 11:14 AM

Great price on a 3DS XL, especially if you don't want to spend $200+ on the new model now. Besides you know they're going to pull something on e3 or something.




#12648246 Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Teaser ONLINE NOW!

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 18 April 2015 - 09:34 PM

I did not like Man of Steel so my expectations dial for this Goyer/Snyder movie are set to low. Interesting trailer though. I can't really wrap my head around how so many people treat Superman like a god, unless it's one that is to be feared. To go from an inspiring figure to a deathbringer and world destroyer. Oh modern comic book grittiness.




#12636092 $48 Brand New DSi @ Gamestop - Deal or no deal?

Damn. I want one, but I am not going into deep New Jersey for one.

This is the one the ones that's on special. It's a micro ATX and I bought a mini ATX case. And I reiterate, I don't plan on overclocking.

 

These are the ones that are on special:

The 128GB Evo 850 SSD is on sale today. Should I add it to my cart as well? I plan on getting a 2TB and the graphics card elsewhere.




#12605082 The Ultimate 'Build-A-PC' Thread. Complete With Pricings & Recommendation...

Posted by detectiveconan16 on 30 March 2015 - 10:03 PM

This is what I'm going to get from Microcenter:

i5-4690 + Z97 PRO4 LGA 1150 ATX = $250
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 4GB Memory Modules) $60
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $110
Thermaltake VL80001W2Z ATX Mid Tower Case $36

Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer- $15

Total: About $500 after tax
 

And I'll buy a 750Ti or 660 on eBay for about $140.

 

Do I need special fans or should I be okay after I buy few minor parts? Don't recommend an i7 or some crap. I picked the i5 over a $50 pentium and $100 i3.
